Lyrics
Black cats creep across my path until I'm almost mad
I must have roused the devil's wrath 'Cause all my luck is bad.

I make a date for golf, and you can bet your life it rains
I try to give a party, and the guy upstairs complains.
I guess I'll go thru life just catching colds and missing trains?
Ev'rything happens to me.
I never miss a thing
I've got the measles and the mumps,
And ev'rytime I play an ace, my partner always trumps. I guess I'm just a fool who never looks before he jumps
Ev'rything happens to me.
At first I thought that you could break this jinx for me,
That love would take the trick to end despair
But now I just can't fool this head that thinks for me
I've mortgaged all my castles in the air

I've telegraphed and phoned, and I sent an airmail special too
Your answer was "Good bye" and there was even postage due.
I fell in love just once, and then it had to be with you?
Ev'rything happens to me,
Ev'rything happens to me.
